The Lion King, long-time ruler of the Broadway and L.A. box offices, roars back into Hollywood as a limited-engagement treat for the holidays. Tony-winning director Julie Taymor made theatrical history when she transformed the beloved Disney movie into one of the most thrilling spectacles ever to grace the stage, with brilliant puppetry and majestic choreography and costumes. And as impressive as the visuals are, the score is equally thrilling, featuring Elton John and Tim Rice's Oscar-winning song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" and "Circle of Life." Indeed, the musical's first appearance on Broadway was more than an impressive debut: Newsweek called it "a landmark event in entertainment." The Pantages became home to the Pridelands for a long and successful run beginning in 2000, and now a new generation has the chance to get swept up in its magic.

I knew this play was an adaptation of a play that dealt with two men who had served in Vietnam. The transfer of the tale to two Iraq veterans didn't quite make the grade -- for instance, just obviously substituting "rag heads" for what was probably originally "gooks" wasn't enough. The acting was fine, the costuming for "Megs" seemed too "leisure suit 70s", and so did the occasional music.

A love story for all of us
Sometimes, in the strangest of places,
someone unexpected comes into our lives, touches our heart,
and we are never ever the same.
The comedic drama, by Stephen Metcalfe, is the moving story of how all our dreams can be shattered in an instant. And the one’s that will save us are those we never would have imagined.
“Strange Snow” was commissioned by the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York and had its world premier there in 1982. Since then, it has been played successfully in theatres, throughout the world. In 1989, it was developed into the major motion picture “Jacknife”, starring Robert DeNiro and Ed Harris. Now, for its 25th Anniversary, Mr. Metcalfe has chosen The Ruskin Group Theatre, to premier an updated version of “Strange Snow”. The play formally took place in the early 70’s and has been modernized in a “Redux”, to reach a newer and wider audience.
“Strange Snow” is directed by John Ruskin and features Mikey Myers, Dane Zinter and Sarah Maine.
